Which came first, the dress or the shoes? Pretty dress, fits great. And yes, isn't cotton wonderful to work with? I love rayons and silks, but nothing beats cotton for sewing.

Adorable dress! And you look fabulous in it because you really got the fit down pat. Love the choice of fabric! Now, you remind me of my dd that looks to be your same age. I went through your whole album and was very impressed by your sewing and your ability to pick a garment that would really accentuate your lovely figure. My only comment---the same thing I tell my pretty dd is --- you are so gorgeous--smile for us! You should because your garments you have sewn look soooo great on you! (Just another nagging mom comment!)

I have this pattern too and really enjoyed making it. You did a wonderful job and your combination of green with the yellow sash is beautiful!
